currently i have a inspiron 530... i decided to take it out of its case because i needed more space to put hard drives... so i have a new case... now im thinking of kinda building my own computer with the dell parts that are "factory" i'm looking to get a new motherboard and could really use some help... currently the foxconn motherboard only has 4 sata ports... i need at least 6-8
also, since im ripping the cpu out of this computer do i need to see a motherboard with the same north / south bridge ?
Foxconn - Products: Motherboard
Processor Name: Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600
Motherboard Chipset: Intel G33 (Bearlake-G) + ICH9R
Total Memory Size: 4 GBytes (DDR2-SDRAM)
Also, I already have a raid card in there but still keep puting on more hard drives so thats why im thinking of changing motherboards... is this possible?
